Make A Summer Mini Album With Janna Werner
I have been very lucky to work with the incredibly talented Janna Werner many times and she’s a total inspiration to me, so I was very excited when Janna submitted lots of her marvellous paper projects for last years Handmade Happy Free Craft Magazine and I hope you enjoy this mini album tutorial. If you make your own little album, be sure to tell me about it and leave a link! – Claire

I gathered paper scraps in different sizes and arranged them on top of each other. To create a fluffy appearance mix large and small pieces. I only used happy, summerlike colors such as pink, yellow, turquoise…
There are many ways of binding a mini album, but why choosing the most difficult binding, when an easy one is as effective?! I love the look of the washi tape binding.
The tag was cut with the Movers & Shapers Die – Tag & Bookplates – one of my favorite dies. The butterflies were cut with the On The Edge Die – Butterflight, the heart with the Bigz Die – Heart, Stem & Leaves. As you can see, I used the heart die on crepe paper.
Love the way it turned out.
If you have a closer look at the top and bottom part of the first paper you´ll notice a decent chevron pattern.
I used the Textured Impressions – Chevrons & Flourishes embossing folder, but instead of running the paper through the Big Shot machine, I placed the paper in the folder and pressed with my hands.
